On a Lighter Note - D13
      06/16/08 09:23 AM

Wow! Heavy weekend on this board!

On a lighter note...my D's are in Florida with my parents.....My dad took them out on the boat on Saturday. They stopped at an island for a picnic lunch. My D13 got on the 2-person inflatable, the kind that you tow behind the boat... The current took her out to the end of the tow rope...about 80 feet (yes, she was wearing a lifevest.) When she got out there, she got SURROUNDED by a family of about 16 MANATEES! Some were full-size (12 feet long!) and one was a tiny baby, about the size of a watermelon! They all came up to her and started gently nudging her raft. So, she's laying on this raft, the manatees are sticking their faces out of the water, looking at her...inches away from her...going under her raft, blowing air on her, checking her out.

I asked her if she touched any of them and she said "no, that's illegal." (In Florida, Manatees can approach you, but you aren't allowed to approch them.)

Dolphins can always be found near manatees in this area, so then a baby dolphin comes up to her raft too and spouted water on her!!!

So, how many 13 year olds can say that were surrounded by 16 of the most gentle, peaceful, endangered species on this planet and got splashed by a wild, baby dolphin?!?!?!?

In the future, when anyone asks me why I love Florida so much...this is why!!! What a surreal experience for her!

The Gov cannot give anything to anyone - that they have not first taken away from someone else.
